Easy Roasted Brussels Sprouts

I made this dish last night and the sprouts were all eaten before we even put dinner on our plates!  I guess they should be called brussels sprouts appetizers.  And for some reason, I was surprised to see that my bag of frozen store-brand brussels sprouts were from Belguim, but yeah, I guess that makes sense.  Anyway, here's a very quick and easy way to cook brussels sprouts so they're nice and caramelized and tasty:


1 (1 lb) bag frozen brussels sprouts
olive oil
balsamic vinegar

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Dump brussels sprouts onto a baking sheet.
  3. Drizzle sprouts with olive oil toss to coat.
  4. Sprinkle some salt & pepper over the sprouts
  5. Bake for about 10 minutes, then shake the pan a little so the sprouts roll around. You could flip them with a spatula, but that's just one more thing to wash.
  6. Bake another 5-10 minutes until sprouts are slightly browned
  7. Remove from oven and sprinkle with balsamic and more salt & pepper, if needed, to taste.
